    I have stock seats if anyone is interested. No seat brackets. Want them out of my garage. Also have my custom rear seats that I made.

    You know what's really fun?? Changing out an alternator on the wife's Saturn. Have to pull the passenger side engine mounts to wiggle it out. If they would have designed the sub-frame one inch further out it would have come right out.

    Explorer took ten minutes. This POS six hours. If you tighten the alternator bolts a little too much, the case deforms and puts pressure on the shaft. Even the drive belt was a pain.

    I'm getting close to ready... I replaced the face of the dashboard yesterday and only blew 1 fuse while wiring the rock lights back into the switch.. I had the switch upside down...

    Now I just need to take the front wheels off and check the bearings and pack all those new to me extra flat washers and other front misc parts (bearings/ seals etc) in the X with a replacement outer passenger axle shaft as the one I took out last time is all chewed up where the plastic washer goes...


    Tomorrow I pick up a pair of trailer tires to replace the 2 the blew on the trailer while sitting over the summer... I really need to get those tires covered during the summer and maybe even get the weight off them. At least I'm going a step up this time to carlisle tires. If I would have noticed this earlier I probably would have picked up better tires (maxxis etc)..

    A sawzall is your friend.. You can build an SOA, so I know you could modify the subframe on the saturn...

    AccuWeather says so it must be true.

    I could have modified the sub frame, but I would have had to remove all that stuff to do that. Plus I didn't want to spend two days cutting up the wife's car. She is easily annoyed.

    Took Dora into the shop today to have my mechanic replace an inner tie rod ($25 is totally worth it) and when I parked, I noticed a green puddle underneath... Great. Hopefully it's a leaky hose and not the radiator. I guess in the mechanics parking lot is a perfect place to notice something like that

    Washed the RV, loaded my tools and filled up the water tank. Did a little snack shopping at the .99 store, and bought new tires for the wife's car.

    It is with deepest regret and months of planning we have to cancel this trip. Something unexpected came up, and we're not going to make this one:(

    We should start planning the next one however, be it Thanksgiving or January.

    See you guys soon.:thumbsup:
